Gérard Depardieu was detained by Paris police yesterday after driving his scooter while driving drunk.
The actor, who injured his elbow - was questioned by law enforcement officers in the French capital after the accident. No one else was involved in the incident with the 63-year-old actor. Last year Gerard shocked fellow passengers on a flight when he insisted on relieving himself in his seat when he was denied permission to use the on-board toilet while the plane was getting ready to take off.
He explained: "I say, 'Madame, I have to pee. I'm not sick, I'm not a terrorist. I just want to pee.'"
Explaining how he used a bottle instead, he added: "Ah, it was so beautiful. I'm not a monster, I'm just a man who has to pee.
Maybe the flight attendant was having a nervous breakdown, I don't understand why she blocked the door. I say, 'Don't worry, I will clean it after!'" Gerard admitted he bottle overflowed, jokingly calling himself an "elephant." He said: "The bottle was much too small. I am an elephant!"
